predicting and influencing human behavior has been the goal of social scientists and leaders anywhere since the beginning of time Pentland s Social Physics is a major contribution to this field By using communication tracking analysis and occasionally human sensors along with big data, he and his team are evolving a new discipline with a unique taxonomy and ontology that brings a higher level of quantification and rigor to a challenging and inherently complex field Like Surowiecki s The Wisdom of Crowds it will spawn further work and research in a rapidly expanding new body of knowledge John Abele, Co Founder, Boston Scientific Read this book and you will look at tomorrow differently Reality mining is just the first step on an exciting new journey Social Physics opens up the imagination to what might now be measurable and modifiable It also hints at what may lie beyond Adam Smith s invisible hand in helping groups, organizations and societies reach new levels of meaning creation This is not just social analytics It also offers pragmatic ways forward John Seely Brown, Former Chief Scientist, Xerox Corporation and director of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center PARC From his MIT aerie, eagle eyed Alex Pentland has seen the future His wise and stimulating book teaches us how ideas spring up, flow, and spread Applying his lessons, we can act collectively to solve previously intractable social, economic and political problems We can make organizations productive We can even have government achieve its proper purposes, with greater fairness and less cost As challenges like widening inequality and runaway climate change seem to exceed our ability to design solutions, Pentland s data driven, reality based, yet sunny optimism about tomorrow should be eagerly welcomed by all readers Reed E Hundt, former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, CEO of the Coalition for Green Capital Sandy Pentland lives in the future and it shows This book will not only whisk you up to speed on cutting edge research at the interface of technology, behavioral science, and the social world, but it will also give you a good sense of what could be next Professor Pentland brilliantly analyses how new ideas flow and how, with the emergence of the data driven society, they will increasingly influence every aspect of our lives Stephen M Kosslyn, Former Dean of Social Science, Harvard University Former Director, Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University Founding Dean, Minerva Schools at KGI Pentland s insights make human behaviour less mysterious, but amazing Social Physics will make you see yourself and your world differently Clay Shirky, author of Cognitive Surplus and Here Comes Everybody Many of us have stood above a colony of ants and been astounded at their ability to act and organise as a social system Humans are, of course, smarter, independent free thinking individuals Read this book and think again With eyesight sharpened by math, modeling, and the familiarity with a new landscape he has in part created, Sandy Pentland and his team are mapping out a new world, crawling with information, that offers some real understanding of who we are and who we could be Welcome to the age of social physics Peter Gabriel, musician From one of the worlds leading data scientists, a landmark tour of the new science of idea flow, offering revolutionary insights into the mysteries of collective intelligence and social influence If the Big Data revolution has a presiding genius, it is MITs Alex Sandy Pentland Over years of groundbreaking experiments, he has distilled remarkable discoveries significant enough to become the bedrock of a whole new scientific field social physics Humans have in common with bees than we like to admit Were social creatures first and foremost Our most important habits of actionand most basic notions of common senseare wired into us through our coordination in social groups Social physics is about idea flow, the way human social networks spread ideas and transform those ideas into behaviors Thanks to the millions of digital bread crumbs people leave behind via smartphones, GPS devices, and the Internet, the amount of new information we have about human activity is truly profound Until now, sociologists have depended on limited data sets and surveys that tell us how people say they think and behave, rather than what they actually do As a result, weve been stuck with the same stale social structuresclasses, marketsand a focus on individual actors, data snapshots, and steady states Pentland shows that, in fact, humans respond much powerfully to social incentives that involve rewarding others and strengthening the ties that bind than incentives that involve only their own economic self interest Pentland and his teams have found that they can study patterns of information exchange in a social network without any knowledge of the actual content of the information and predict with stunning accuracy how productive and effective that network is, whether its a business or an entire city We can maximize a groups collective intelligence to improve performance and use social incentives to create new organizations and guide them through disruptive change in a way that maximizes the good At every level of interaction, from small groups to large cities, social networks can be tuned to increase exploration and engagement, thus vastly improving idea flow Social Physics will change the way we think about how we learn and how our social groups workand can be made to work better, at every level of society Pentland leads readers to the edge of the most important revolution in the study of social behavior in a generation, an entirely new way to look at life itself From the Trade Paperback edition.
